1) Naturally Occurring 1,5-Diarylpentanoids: A Review
Diarylpentanoids, having Ar-C5-Ar chain, are a small class of natural products, most of which have been discovered in last the decade. This review comprises 20 natural diarylpentanoids, including their isolation, characterization and biological activities.DOI http://doi.org/10.25135/acg.oc.33.17.10.052 Keywords Diarylpentanoids natural product biological activity DETAILS PDF OF ARTICLE © 2017 ACG Publications.

2) Synthesis and biological assessment of novel acylhydrazone derivatives of 2-methyl-1,4-naphthoquinone
Naphthoquinones are medicinally important molecules with a diverse array of biological properties such as antimicrobial, antifungal, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, anti-artherosclerotic and anticarcinogenic activities. In this study, we report the simple and direct preparation of a new group of novel menadione-hydrazone conjugates by reaction of 2-methyl-1,4-naphthoquinones with several aliphatic, aromatic and nucleobase hydrazides. The menadione-hydrazone conjugates were produced in excellent yields and characterized by IR, NMR and HRMS. The menadione derivatives were tested for their anticancer effects against human colon cancer HCT116 and human breast cancer MCF-7 cell lines. Interestingly, the molecules displayed disparate activities against both cell lines; the menadione hydrazones derived from the lipophilic myristic hydrazide and stearic hydrazide exhibited the most potent activity against HCT116 cell lines with IC50 of 89 and 64 μM. The most effective compounds against MCF-7 cells were the lauric hydrazide and benzoic hydrazide-derived menadione hydrazones with IC50 of 56 µM.DOI http://doi.org/10.25135/acg.oc.26.17.07.040 Keywords 2-methyl-1 4-naphthoquinone menadione acylhydrazone pyrimidine nucleobase purine nucleobase DETAILS PDF OF ARTICLE © 2017 ACG Publications.

3) An intermolecular Diels-Alder cycloaddition under various condition between 1,3-cyclohexadiene and 7-oxabicyclo[2.2.1]hepta-2,5-diene-2,3-dicarboxylate
The reaction between 1,3-cyclohexadiene and dimethyl 7-oxabicyclo[2.2.1]hepta-2,5-diene-2,3-dicarboxylate both without a catalyst and with different catalysts, in both atmospheric and at high pressure, over 20 days were studied. At the end of the reactions, different products (retro Diels-Alder addition product 5 and Diels-Alder addition product 6 ) were obtained in different yields. When we look at the percentage of the addition product, it is observed that the yield of reaction at high pressure in water is the highest. All structures of these products were characterized by 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, MS, and IR spectroscopy.DOI http://doi.org/10.25135/acg.oc.32.17.09.049 Keywords Green chemistry Diels-Alder reactions catalyst tetracyclicmolecule DETAILS PDF OF ARTICLE © 2017 ACG Publications.

4) Synthesis and biological activities of some new spiro 1,2,4-triazole derivatives having sulfonamide moiety
A new series of spiro 1,2,4-triazoles 5-9a-j were prepared by the reaction of appropriate amidrazones 4 with cyclic ketones in catalytic amount of p-toluene sulfonic acid. The structures of the titled compounds have been elucidated by the elemental analysis and spectroscopic data (IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR and MS). The biological activities of the prepared compounds were investigated using well-established methods from the literature.DOI http://doi.org/10.25135/acg.oc.27.17.08.046 Keywords Amidrazone nitrilimines spiro 1 2 4-triazole sulfonamide cyclic ketone DETAILS PDF OF ARTICLE © 2017 ACG Publications.

5) Lanthanum (III) nitrate hexahydrate catalyzed one-pot synthesis of 2-arylbenzothiazoles under mild reaction conditions
An efficient one pot synthesis of 2-arylbenzothiazole derivatives through condensation of aldehydes and 2-aminothiophenol in the presence of catalytic amount of La(NO 3) 3 · 6H 2O under mild reaction conditions was developed. The key advantages of this protocol are short reaction time, high to excellent yields, simple work up, inexpensive catalyst and simple separation of pure product.DOI http://doi.org/10.25135/acg.oc.29.17.08.044 Keywords Aromatic aldehyde 2-aminothiophenol Lanthanum (III) nitrate hexahydrate DETAILS PDF OF ARTICLE © 2017 ACG Publications.

6) Synthesis of novel nitroso acetal derivatives via tandem 6π-electrocyclization/ [3+2]-cycloaddition of 1-nitro-2-methyl-1,3 butadiene
Novel nitroso acetal derivatives (4-methyl-2,3,3a,6-tetrahydroisoxazolo[2,3-b][1,2]oxazine) were synthesized through 6π-electrocyclization/[3+2]-cycloaddition reaction of several dionophiles with 1-nitro-2-methyl-1,3-butadiene. Structures of the synthesized compounds were determined by 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, IR and GC-MS analyses.DOI http://doi.org/10.25135/acg.oc.30.17.08.045 Keywords Nitrodiene nitroso acetal 6π-electrocyclization [3 + 2] cycloaddition pericyclic reactions DETAILS PDF OF ARTICLE © 2017 ACG Publications.

7) One-step synthesis of a singly bridged biscalixarene and evaluation of its alkali metal recognition properties
This article describes one-step synthesis of a singly bridged biscalixarene ( 2 ) and evaluation of its recognition properties towards alkali metal ions for the first time. Synthesis of 2 was accomplished through coupling of two 4-tert-butylcalixarene units with one molecule of diethyleneglycol ditosylate. Both base and linker were found to play a role in the outcome of coupling reaction for the simple and efficient synthesis of 2 . Complexation ability of 2 was studied by liquid-liquid extraction using alkali metal (Na +, K +, Cs +) picrates. Carrier activity of 2 towards the facilitated transport of alkali metal ions across a bulk liquid membrane was also studied and the transport behaviour was mechanistically explained. The predominant role of an ion exchange action mechanism in the transport process was observed.DOI http://doi.org/10.25135/acg.oc.28.17.06.029 Keywords Biscalixarene singly bridged bulk liquid membrane transport alkali metal ions DETAILS PDF OF ARTICLE © 2017 ACG Publications.
